Ma'mitons, A fashion and charity fusion




As some of you may already know I am generally a huge fan of anything environmentally friendly, animal friendly, ethical or vegan so when I heard about the brand Ma’mitons, things got serious, I mean who doesn't want to buy a unique handbag and help out environmentally and ethically at the same time? But before I get all fangirly, here are a couple of things I personally love about Ma’mitons themselves:

Ma’mitons is a fashion company set up by Priscilla Njankou, their products are sustainable and environmentally friendly because they are made out of raffia leaves that come from the Palm trees that naturally grow in Cameroon. And if that doesn't get your ‘help out the planet’ tails wagging then this will, not only are they sustainable but they are each handmade in Cameroon which provides jobs and helps eliminate poverty in the area. They also donate a percentage of their profits to the SOS Childrens Village charity which is the worlds largest charity dedicated to orphaned children supporting over 500 villages in 133 countries!  




Not only are Ma'mitons a great brand for promoting ethical awareness but their products look amazing too. Here are two bags that I personally love,

The first for a hot summers day out, its big enough to carry all your summer essentials with you such as suntan lotion, water, sunglasses ect.










The second one is by far my favourite, I think it is just perfect for a summers girls night out, I can just imagine wearing it while on holiday in Spain and going to a nice beach side restaurant for some Sangria, I would style this with either a black or white outfit so that the bag itself is the focus of attention and that  pop of colour to your outfit! 








For example I love how Sharni Vinson (you may know her from Step-Up 3 and Blue Crush) styled this clutch bag, by wearing all black she's making sure that the bag itself is the centre of attention when it comes to this outfit!


As you can probably tell I am seriously just in love with this brand, not only for their amazingly unique bags but for everything they stand for as well, and as many of you know I'm from South Africa and I whole heartedly support any business (obviously a business with good intentions) that can be brought to Africa because it truly is a beautiful continent with amazing people and so much to offer!

If you want to get your hands on some of these bags (I know I seriously want that clutch) click here to go to their crowd funding page, they have an 'early bird' perk where if you donated $70 or £41.22 (the retail price for these bags are usually $109 or £64.19) you get to pick from the collection and receive your bag before anyone else! Now I just need to crowd fund for myself so I can actually own one of these amazing bags!
